One of the biggest mobile company in the past, Nokia is coming back with their Android Powered handset in the 4th quarter of 2016. Earlier, Nokia was the last word in the mobile and one third of the total market was with Nokia. But with the change in the smartphone market Nokia loose their power and also failed to adapt with the changing trend also. Samsung and Apple gained the market share and soon Nokia was out of the market too.
The company in 2014 tried to reach the market with the takeover by Microsoft too, but it also doesn’t help much. Windows phone doesn’t have much demand while Android started growing. After all these, now the report coming that the company is trying to catch the market again and they are going to launch new Android 7.0 Nougat powered handset.
According to a report by the Chinese news firm The Paper, the Nokia China President Mike Wang has confirmed that there will be three to four Nokia-branded devices that will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year. These devices will include both smartphones and tablets.
While Nokia was taken by Microsoft there was a deal of not using the brand Nokia till the last quarter of 2016. So the deal will end soon and the company is planing to introduce new phones under the brand Nokia after that.
However there are reports that these devices will not be manufactured at the plants where Nokia’s earlier smartphones were manufactured, the new products will be manufactured by Finnish company HMD Global. Nokia, earlier this year, had granted HMD Global the exclusive license to create Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets for the next 10 years.
